Company History

Etegent Technologies, Ltd., formerly Sheet Dynamics, Ltd. (or SDL), was founded in 1996 by two academic researchers whose goal was to put state-of-the-art university research into products and services for commercial enterprises. The company principals, Stuart J. Shelley and Thomas D. Sharp, earned their Ph.D. degrees from the University of Cincinnati and the company remains headquartered in Cincinnati and continues its close ties to the University.

Much of Etegent's early work focused on monitoring and improving rolling mill processes, hence the initial name, Sheet Dynamics, Ltd.  Etegent's activities and expertise rapidly evolved beyond this area however.

In Early 2010, we sought a new name which would more accurately reflect the capability and activity of the company.  After much consideration, we realized that the essence of what we do is find hidden knowledge and understanding in data and complex physical systems. Our new name reflects this:  Etegent is Latin for "to reveal that which is hidden," which perfectly describes the work we do.

We have developed a broad client base including the Air Force, Navy, Army, the National Science Foundation, NASA, and numerous other commercial customers and prime defense contractors. Etegent forms close partnerships with its clients, in effect becoming an integral part of their research and development staff.
